VIRGINIA----impending execution

Urgent Action

DELUSIONAL DISORDER DIAGNOSED, EXECUTION SET

William Morva, a 35-year-old US-Hungarian national, is due to be executed in
Virginia on 6 July. A psychiatrist has diagnosed him with delusional disorder,
and concluded that this contributed to the
crimes for which he was sentenced to death. The jury was not told that he had
this serious mental disability.

Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

* Calling for commutation of William Morva’s death sentence and medical care
for his mental
disability;

* Noting the diagnosis of delusional disorder, but that the jurors were told
he had a less serious
mental disability and did not experience delusions, denying them a full
picture of who they were being asked to sentence;

* Explaining that you are not seeking to downplay the seriousness of violent
crime or its
consequences.

Friendly reminder: If you send an email, please create your own instead of
forwarding this one!
